Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award

I’ve entered my second novel, The Lives of Perfect Creatures, into the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Contest:

The Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award is an opportunity for emerging fiction writers to join a community of authors on Amazon.com, showcase their work, and compete for a chance to get published.

This year, they were only accepting 10,000 entries and the period to enter was just one week, from Feb. 2 until today, about an hour ago. I found out about it just yesterday but luckily I’ve been sending my manuscript out to publishers for the last three months and so had all the necessary pitch material ready. I’m confident that I’ve got a good chance of making it into the next round, where 500 excerpts will be posted on Amazon for review. I’ll let everyone know and we’ll see what happens.
